My Surfing Philosophy by Trevor Murphy
he art of wave riding is very hard to describe. To paint surfing
and time spent in and around the ocean with a single brush is
damn near impossible. Sur ng to some people is the freedom from
the stresses of everyday life. A release or escape from the realities of
a day working your ngers to the bone. To others its their job or ca-
reer. Working their hardest to sustain the life they love in and around
the ocean.
Sur ng to me is a constant reminder not to take what we are given
for granted. The fact that one good wave can change the outlook on
your whole day, month , year and even your life is nothing short of
amazing. The majority of earthlings have no clue the magnitude of
stoke we nd in the motion of the ocean. The smiles a good session
can bring and the tribe like quality it creates between total strangers
is quite surreal. Cheering on your fellow man and looking out for their
well being in the blink of a eye are qualities that are only found in the
art of sur ng.
Sur ng to me is my life. It has its ups and it downs but in the end I am
just happy I came along for the ride.
